Back to the Desserts Index

Pre-heat your oven to 400F.

Put the syrup into a saucepan with the bread crumbs and either the ginger or the lemon rind and juice and heat gently until just melted. Cool.

Roll out the dough and use to line a 9" pie plate. Pour in the syrup mixture. Roll out the dough trimmings and cut into long, narrow strips. Arrange them in a lattice pattern over the filling.

Bake in a moderately hot oven (400F) for 25–30 min or until the pastry is slightly browned

Serve hot or cold, with whipped cream.
